FOURTH FRIDAY CLUB

The Fourth Friday Club provides a unique networking forum for executives from all sectors in the railway industry. It was founded by former Modern Railways Editor James Abbott, based on an industry networking club he discovered in the USA. Meetings are held seven times per year, and all feature networking opportunities, luncheon and guest speakers. Three events are at central London venues and include major industry awards events – the Golden Spanners, Golden Whistles and Railway Innovation Awards. Four regional conferences are also held each year in the North of England, West of England/Wales, the Midlands and Scotland.
